Episode 18

The Promise Ring’s Nothing Feels Good

Released October 14 1997

I came to the Promise Ring late in their career, but their 2nd full length record, Nothing Feels Good, quickly became one of my most played records. I believe this to be one of the most solid records from beginning to end in all of the post punk genres of which I am familiar.

This podcast features individual interviews with all of the band members appearing on Nothing Feels Good, Singer/Songwriter Davey von Bholen, Second Guitarist Jason Gnewikow, Drummer Dan Didier, and Bassist Scott Beschta. This episode also includes an interview with Gub Scott Conway of Gauge, Screeching Weasel, and Even In Blackouts. Plus two written audio pieces by Promise Ring fans Rust Belt Jessie and Joe Jacob.

There is much hard work put into these podcasts to attempt to make them as thorough as possible. If you are enjoying the products of this hard work on a consistent basis please share with others or donate some cash to the cause.

Bhopal Stiffs strikes close to my heart. They were the first band Screeching Weasel played with in Chicago, outside of our suburban homes. We played at a 21 and over club that was called Batteries Not Included. There was barely an audience there to see either bands but when Bhopal Stiffs got on stage their energy, music and commitment blew me away. They are first on my top two punk shows that I have ever seen.

Interviews with band members:

Larry Damore

Steve Saylors

Vince Marine

David Schleitwiler

Assistant Editing by: Jason Brow

1. Jim Ellison from Material Issue passed away in 1996.
2. In the podcast I play an Effigies song when referring to Iain Burgess. I played Body Bag, but Iain didn't engineer and produce till later records: Fly On The Wire and Ink.
3. The Christian Televangelist is Robert Tilton.

The Vindictives’ 1999 release of HYPNO PUNKO™

With interviews of each band member represented on the record:

Joey Vindictive, Johnny Personality, Billy Blastoff, Jenny Gee, and Angel Ledezma.

An eccentric punk rock concept record in the midst of most pop punk bands pushing for a piece of the mainstream? Well… sorta the history. Listen and explore the depth of this very personal record conceived by the band’s frontman Joey Vindictive.

Big Black’s aggressive and abrasive music was characterized by distinctively clanky guitars and the use of a drum machine (who they lovingly called Roland) elements which pre­-cursored industrial rock. The band acknowledged no taboos and Albini’s lyrics openly dealt with loaded topics including murder, rape, child sexual abuse, and racism. They also held staunch principles, shunning the mainstream music industry and insisting on complete control over all aspects of their career. This podcast attempts to tell a portion of the history of the band from the perspective of their ep Bulldozer through their first full length record Atomizer. (Marking a transition from a project purely conceived by Steve Albini into a cohesive band with the added influences from collaborators Santiago Durango and Dave Riley.)

This episode is co-hosted by Russ Forster and includes interviews with band members Santiago Durango, Steve Albini, and Jeff Pezzati, including extra interview material with friend and fellow songwriter/musician Camilo Gonzalez. Lastly an audio piece written by journalist/novelist/radio personality Jim DeRogatis.

Russ Forster is a perennial dabbler in the underground and eccentric. Past exercises in cognitive dissonance include Underdog Records, 8-Track Mind magazine, documentaries So Wrong They're Right and Tributary, and various and sundry bands and acts like his current extreme-solo project Rakehell.

Assistant Editor: Jason Brow of the 6ftplus Podcast.
